Step-By-Step Guidance For Probate
The responsibility of an executor is to administer an estate by legally transferring all belongings effectively and efficiently through probate. These numerous tasks can be overwhelming. As an executor, you have a fiduciary responsibility to administer the estate correctly and if you don’t, you could have legal action brought against you. This is a huge responsibility to manage.

I can help with these and other probate process deliverables:

I can also represent you in a will contest or probate litigation. I always work toward a fair out-of-court settlement but will be ready to advocate at trial, if necessary.
